It’s no secret that Rob Kardashian and Angela Renée White, better known as Blac Chyna, have had a rocky relationship—to say the least. Now, Chyna is suing Kardashian and his family for allegedly damaging her brand and verbally and physically abusing her, as reported by People.
On Tuesday, the 29-year old model and reality TV star filed the complaint against her ex-fiancé and his sisters Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, and mom, Kris Jenner. According to the lawsuit obtained by People, Chyna says she’s suffered “significant damages” after Rob illegally shared graphic photos of her, and that the Kardashian family are to blame for their reality show Rob & Chyna getting cancelled.
“Rob Kardashian and his powerful, vindictive family have done enough damage to Ms. White’s career and professional reputation, which she singlehandedly built from scratch—without the help of a famous last name. This lawsuit seeks to hold them accountable,” the lawsuit states.
Blac Chyna’s lawsuit is the latest legal action in the Chyna/Kardashian feud
Back in September, Rob and younger sister Kylie sued Chyna for alleged assault, battery and vandalism, as reported by People.
The 30-year-old reality star and
wannabe sock designer claims that Chyna tried to choke him with an iPhone charger cord and repeatedly struck him across the face during a fight last December. According to his lawsuit, Rob “was able to escape her grasp, however he suffered injuries to his neck.” The alleged incident took place in 20-year-old Kylie’s home, which Rob was renting from her at the time.
Rob also says the mother of his child—who he alleges was intoxicated at the time—called his friends on FaceTime, “and was carelessly playing with [his] gun unaware if the gun was loaded or if the safety was on.”
The complaint goes on to say that after Rob left the house in his Bentley to flee the abuse, Chyna reportedly threw “a nearby chair at Rob’s car causing damage to the vehicle and also used a metal rod to injure Rob.”
Rob and Kylie say Chyna then vandalized the house, causing more than $100,000 USD in damages. They claim Chyna broke down a door, damaged walls and a TV and destroyed cell phones in the house.
Rob Kardashian also filed a lawsuit against Blac Chyna this past September
Rob’s lawsuit is only a portion of the legal battle between the former partners and parents to daughter Dream, who was born in November 2016.
This summer, following his 4th of July celebrations (and sock promotion), Rob posted spoke out on social media claiming that Chyna had sent him a video of showing herself in bed with another man. “The same day I sent my jeweller to drop off $250K of jewelry. Same day my babies are in the house and I find out this,” Rob wrote in a multiple-post Instagram rant (which was also continued on Twitter).
Just sad. Loved Chyna as my wife and accepted all the wrong she did and continued to ride for her and remain Loyal to her. Never did I cheat

Rob continued on to post accusations on Twitter and Instagram that Chyna did drugs, cheated on him with multiple men and underwent extensive plastic surgery after their daughter was born (in addition to numerous other allegations).

However, their feud went beyond hateful comments with Rob also publicly posting explicit photos of Chyna to his nearly 99,000 Instagram followers, as well as a video of Chyna where she appears to be in bed with another man.
Chyna decided to take legal action and the model was granted a temporary restraining order against her ex-fiancé, forbidding him from contacting her and posting about her online. Chyna’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, who also represented actor Mischa Barton in her revenge porn case, told reporters outside a California courthouse that “revenge porn is a form of domestic abuse.” Standing alongside Chyna, Bloom reiterated that sharing intimate photos without consent is “a crime in California and 38 other states.”

“We had a complete and total victory. The judge gave us everything we asked for, which is a set of very strong and enforceable restraining orders against Rob Kardashian,” Bloom said.
Rob, who did not appear in court, was represented by Robert Shapiro—the lawyer who famously worked with his late father on the O.J. Simpson case.
“I, personally, on Mr. Kardahsian’s behalf apologized and offered our regrets as to what happened in the past couple of days,” Shapiro said. “Now we move forward to do one thing and one thing only, whatever is in the best interest of the child.”
The nude photos have since been removed from Instagram (although numerous screenshots have surfaced on gossip media sites) and Rob’s account was temporarily shut down. The 10-second video was reposted to Twitter and has since been retweeted more than 55,000 times.
In an interview with ABC News that aired on July 10, Chyna said she was bereft about his recent actions.
“I was devastated, of course. I’m like, ‘How could somebody, like, post these pictures of me?,'” Chyna said to ABC. “And I’m like, ‘Wow, okay, like, this is a person that I trusted.’ I just felt… betrayed.”
Chyna went on to defend why she sent Rob the video of herself in bed with another man: “If somebody keeps pokin’ at you and pokin’ at you and pokin’ at you, and keep pokin’ at you, you’re eventually, you’re gonna pop. And so I was just like, ‘Maybe if I send this video to him, then he’ll just leave me alone.'”
